Deployable Engine Air-Brake for Drag Management Applications, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Deployable Engine Air-Brake for Drag Management Applications, Phase I
ATA Engineering, Inc, proposes an SBIR program to demonstrate an innovative engine air-brake (EAB) technology that uses a deployable swirl vane mechanism to switch the operation of a turbofan engine nozzle from a conventional to a "drag management" mode. Such "drag on demand" enables operational benefits such as slower, steeper, and/or aeroacoustically cleaner flight on approach, addressing NASA's need for active and passive control of aeroacoustic noise sources for conventional and advanced air More »
